companies. i see so many small businesses, i was out in california yesterday, i must have met in four days with eight of our companies, and i asked every one of them, what impact does this have? what difference is it going to make whether romney wins or obama? i honestly believe it's almost a neutral element in terms of the young companies. when they are growing and they are excited and their product is being taken up, and most of them that i'm dealing with are internet or wireless based, it's an environment you don't stop hiring. in fact they have big open to buys. >> so what does affect those companies? what are they looking at beyond their own home base? >> i think the general environment will have an impact. i think that the tone of the top will have an impact. i think my personal feeling, the biggest impact for the kind of companies i'm in are what happens for advertising expenditures. i think advertising and advertising -- >> you talked about immigration policy as well. >> sorry, thank you, thank you. immigration policy is getting the kind of people, everyone is frustrated with the i
